It's the right answer, some fantastic heritage in those hulls. Wish I'd had the time, money, space and location to have one. Alas it was not to be, but those were masterclasses in clinker.

Tenuously fly fishing this one.... but the sort of thing that piques my curiosity. So here goes....
How is it possible that Loch Arkaig ended up in Gateshead :?

OK, I'll fire up another question.

Who am I :?

I have my own fishing tackle company based in Scotland.
The roots of my company started when I managed another tackle brand with worldwide influence on the double handed fly line market in the early '00s.
Noted mostly for fly lines, I do also produce rods with my one brand, which is not eponymous.

Ok......A question, and one i don't know the answer to.......(at least i don't know now.....or maybe i never knew....or i have just forgotten).......but what is this thing for, i found it in my fly tying bag.....

It has Orvis written on it so it is probably very expensive.....any ideas?
